Martie Maguire Baby

ANOTHER CHICK FOR DIXIE CHICK ~ Martie Maguire of the Dixie Chicks gave birth to a girl, Harper Rosie, on July 25th, 2008 in Austin, Texas. The baby girl weighed 7 lb., 10 oz. and was 20.5 inches long and is a little sister for twins Eva Ruth and Kathleen Emilie, who were born in April 2004. "Martie is doing very well and Gareth and the family are over the moon," says a statement on the band's Web site. In January, Maguire told People of her pregnancy that "Carrying one instead of two will be much easier."

Maguire is married to Gareth Maguire, a professor. Their first children, twin daughters arrived in 2004 (Eva Ruth and Kathleen Emilie).

In regard to the growing brood between her and the rest of her band mates (singer Natalie Maines and Maguire's sister, Emily Robison) she says; "We'll have to move over and let the little chicks take over! We've got a new band!"
